Day 257 – Flying over Colombian coffee, Medellin

Colombia is a mountainous country which makes for long and windy bus trips. So with little then 2 weeks left and the availability of cheap internal flights we fly from Santa Marta to Medellin in the afternoon for $80 each. A 15 hr overnight bus trip (and not risking night buses in Colombia) vs 1 hour flying time we feel very spoilt. Hard to believe we are in a city which was the headquarters for Pablo Escobar, and a city that was considered more dangerous than Beirut during the 70s & 80s. Two decades later it has transformed and was chosen as the most innovative city in the world.
